A world filled with lazy, out of shape, undisciplined whiners who break down under the smallest of pressures and complain about everything the military does.
Sgt: Where are you headed soldier?
GI: I'm going home! Back to civilian life.
Sgt: Are you nuts? You'll die a miserable death.
An overhyped title that ended up on the used games shelf faster than a mcdonalds hamburger going stale. Managed to get kudos for cinematics, dual wielded weapons, and increased multiplayer action. Nothing memorable. If you payed full price you got juked.

Architect whose originality and style were overshadowed by his inflated view of self and tendency to create structures that leaked, were difficult to heat, and cracked. Embraced 'hypocritical humility' which is funny because he had nothing really to be arrogant about. The Unity Temple in Oak Park, like many of his works, looks like an upscale military barracks. He wasted alot of time avoiding the arch and pillar. Wright couldn't hold a candle to much better architects like Louis Sullivan or Daniel Burnham.
Jane: Hey what's that building over there?
Mark: It's a Borg complex. It was created by some guy named Frank Lloyd Wright.
Jane: Never heard of him.
1)A term used to describe an overhyped fad. 2)A word used to describe an exhausted genre. 3)A phrase used to describe the end result of poor musicians, who are even worse lyricists, composing a horrendously sounding 1 to 2.5 minute song that is hailed by the bourgeoisie, not because of any inherent greatness in compostion or artistic value, but because it provides catharsis in a boring materialistic non-spiritual society. Most 'great' rock ideas have been stolen from blues, gospel, and jazz artists who labored with genuine passion to produce something complex, original, and timeless.

David: We'll be millionaires.
Johnny: We'll save the world.
David: Rock On.
